Description

Purple Turtle Leech Socks should be worn like a second pair of socks inside your boots and they pull right up over your trousers and above your knees. They can then be secured with a toggle and elastic draw cord both above and below your knees, thereby creating a continuous leech proof barrier.

Purple Turtle Leech Socks are constructed from a thin but tough, breathable synthetic fabric, making them perfect for trekking in the hot, wet and humid conditions that leeches love. They’re usually available in several different colours and sizes and they’re supplied with a draw-string bag for storage.

Size Guide – the right size for you depends on your height, not your shoe size:

– Short – approx 20″ (51cm) long – suitable for children and adults up to about 5′ 6″ (1.68m) tall

– Medium – approx 22″ (56cm ) long – suitable for adults between about 5′ 6″ and 5′ 10″ (1.68m to 1.78m)

– Long – approx 24″ (61cm) long – suitable for adults taller than about 5′ 10″ (1.78m)

The size isn’t critical – it’s just a bit of a trade off between comfort and ease of use. The shorter they are, the more easily they stay up, although they may catch a bit at the back of your knees. The longer they are, the more likely they are to slip down a bit, but they’re less likely to catch at the back of your knees.
